Edamame Salad (GF, V)

Edamame Salad (GF, V)

So, I lied. (Unintentionally, of course.) Even though my family is now on the other side of the country, I still have one final “Mom-tastic” recipe for y’all! Edamame Salad (GF, V)

This recipe is inspired by Food Network Magazine! Not only does it meet my celiac needs, but it’s also vegetarian and vegan, if that’s important to you.

It’s quick to make, light, but full of flavor! For me, this is the perfect dish to pack in my lunch, especially with some added grilled chicken. However, it also serves as a refreshing side dish that your whole family will enjoy.

So, without further ado, here’s the recipe!

Inspired by Food Network Magazine, March 2015

Now, I am of course bringing this dish to my favorite party on the blogosphere… Fiesta Friday!

And, this weekend, I will be working. (I work most weekends in March.) But, I love my job, so it’s all good! Plus, ski season is about ready to draw to a close, which means I’ll be embarking on a new chapter of my life soon enough.

Happy Cooking, y’all!

  3. Ooh, I do love edamame – usually have this as a starter at Japanese restaurants but I love the idea of it in a salad like this. Thanks so much for bringing this to the party – Happy Fiesta Friday!

    1. Thanks, Selma! That’s how I usually have edamame too, but I love mixing it up with this salad. I get edamame as an appetizer quite frequently because it’s something easy for restaurants can prepare separately for me fairly easily. Happy FF, and I hope you have a fantastic weekend! 😀

  4. YUM YUM ! This looks SO refreshing! I would take out some ingredients, but would love to mix in some grilled chicken, I am totally making this for a BBQ 🙂

    1. Thanks, Amber! I’m guessing you need to take the jalapeño out. It’s definitely refreshing though, and I’m sure you’ll make a great modification! 🙂
